What our students are saying

I loved the course structure and the size of the campus/student body as it reduced the amount of anxiety I had about starting uni and made it easier to make friends.
Lucy FistBachelor of Business in Hotel Management |
The skills and exposure learnt from a variety of subjects have helped immensely with the physical experiences and day-today operations I have come into contact with. Applying every subject from finance to strategic management and intrinsically linking text book studies to everyday business challenges is what I am thankful for within the workplace - Bachelor of Business in Hotel Management, graduated 2014

I learnt skills that I have continued to use during my role in Management of Front Office. Building relationships along with networking is a crucial aspect of hospitality and my experience at The Hotel School has assisted with that. The Hotel school is very well known in the industry and fully prepares you for the challenges you will come across in the real world of hospitality.
